News

It’s not every day that you read about a chocolate brown mare being spared from a harsh reality. While it’s the dogs and cats we read about most in animal rescue stories, Plainview native and animal lover Andria McMaugh, shines light on the endangered horses of Long Island, and what is being done to help them.

McMaugh strapped on her riding boots at 10 years old. When she entered George Washington University as a freshman, McMaugh became a member of the school’s Equestrian team.

Bank representatives and police have officially acknowledged that multiple skimming devices were found at TD Bank’s Plainview branch during a routine repair last month — and the acknowledgment has customers livid.

According to investigators and bank officials, on March 9 an ATM repairman was doing routine repairs in the branch at 500 Old Country Rd., when he discovered a skimming device on the ATM in the bank’s vestibule. A second skimming device was found on the card reader at the vestibule’s entrance, police said.
